‘Ulika’ does little to island

Tropical Storm Ulika is dissipating and remnants of the storm are diminishing over the islands, particularly on Maui and Hawaii island.

“There was a trough of low pressure located southeast of the Big Island and Maui,” said Matthew Foster, a representative from the Pacific Hurricane Center. “There isn’t really much left of it; it’s already passed by. It dissipated about week ago. Most of it went to the south of us.”

The National Weather Service issued a flash flood watch on Tuesday citing the “combination of abundant moisture and an upper level disturbance”.

The NWS extended its flash-flood watch into Wednesday, adding that thunderstorms are “possible” over the Leeward side of the Big Island but according to Foster, the worst is over.
